A Resolution of Appreciation and Gratitude [to the South Carolina Synod History Matters Team]

By The Rev. Michele Fischer

The South Carolina Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America gave thanks to those who spent the last 15 years working on the three volumes of History Matters.

The first volume, History Matters: Congregational Histories, 1824-2017, was published in 2017 and contains the history of over 167 congregations within our synod. The second volume, History Matters, Historical Narrative, 1824-2018, was completed in 2019 by writers Jeanette Bergeron, The Rev. Wayne Kannaday, and The Rev. Dr. George Anderson. The final volume, History Matters: Leadership Directory, contains the biographical sketches of about 1400 rostered ministers who have SC Synod connections ranging from 1732 to 2022.

Many thanks to all who have worked on this project, and supported this project financially and otherwise. Those who would like to buy a copy of these books can do so by contacting Deacon Dot Jeffcoat or by calling the synod office.
